Craic at the Grand Prix! 

Congratulations to Alana and Fiona, our awesomely talented Craic singers, who had the honor of opening the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 15th with their rendition of the national anthem! Taking place on the streets of Long Beach, CA since 1975, this annual event is the longest running street race in North America and regularly draws crowds in excess of 200,000 people.
 
Fiona later described the event:

"Yesterday truly was an amazing experience! It was so surreal to have the opportunity to sing the National Anthem at the Grand Prix and see the flyover. They run a tight ship over there! Minute by minute schedule! We had 1 minute and 30 seconds to sing the song, beginning at 1:26pm, as the flyover was scheduled to happen at 1 minute and 32 seconds. Everything was so precise! Listening to the guy giving everyone cues, and even timing the skydivers before us! Everything was so amazing! Not to mention being on the track and seeing the cars and the race so close up. Truly such a blessed life!"

Thanks again, ladies... you know you made us proud!!!

Welcome, Alana and Fiona! 

Sisters Alana(L) and Fiona (R)

Those of you who follow us on Facebook have known this for awhile, but for the rest, we would like to officially introduce you to two new members of our family, vocalists Alana and Fiona.

These two sisters have been harmonizing together since childhood as their mother, an Irish native, taught them to appreciate their rich heritage from a very young age. They've toured with the International Peace Choir as representatives of Ireland, and when we heard them sing Danny Boy for us, we knew we'd made a serendipitous find.

Of course, we're more than thrilled to have them join us, but our words alone aren't really going to do them justice. For more, check out their bios here, and be sure to come hear them sing live!
